I am a first user of HA and am trying out different aids. After having rejected the Widex Inteo IN-9 with conventional molds, I have tried out the Inteo élan IN-9é with open fitting. As the compression mode kicks in much to rapidely without any apparent reason and nothing can be done to solve this problem, my audio fitted me this morning with the Phonak Micro Savia.
A real delight, you don’t even notice you are wearing HA, but the price is a total different matter : 4.700 EUR !!!
My audio is trying to reassure me that these “jewels” are completely covering my HL, even in the lower frequencies, and that the feedback suppression is one of the best you can have. Is this really the case ?
I fear that my hearing loss in the lowest frequencies aren’t covered by the Savia’s and certainly not for my right ear. I was in favour of trying out the Phonak Micro Power or the Phonak Micro Valeo, but it seems my audio thinks otherwise …
